Art Journal - Flowing Locks

I did this painting in my art journal that has kraft coloured paper. I drew the girl and then painted her with water colour paints. I'm very new to doing faces and I still have to learn how to shade them properly. I'm not going for a realistic photograph style here as you can see, but a more whimsical style.
I'll keep practicing! :D

Art Journal - Falling Leaves

Here is another page in my art journal where I was using up paint from another project. I painted it quickly and with abandon. It is so freeing to work this way with no particular care of the outcome, just a joy in the moment. So much fun!!! You should try it. :D
Take care!

Art Journal - Cypress Trees Van gogh Style

On this art journal page I was connecting with my inner Van gogh.  *L* I was also trying to use up some paint from another project. I painted the cypress trees and made a wild sky for fun. It is very freeing to paint with abandon like this. I figure anything goes in an art journal so just play!!!!! Hope you like it!

Have fun! :D

Art Journal - Leaf Prints

I did some leaf printing while I was away at the lake. I got some leaves from a beautiful flowering bush and sorry that I don't know the name of the bush. I then applied different colours of paints to the back side of the leaves, which had the prominent veins. I printed the leaves several times all over the page.
It was so much fun that I got another art journal that has kraft paper pages and did some more.

It's fun to use things from nature in your art journals. I'm not sure if I'll add to these pages in the future or not. I think they are beautiful just as they are now. What do you think? What would you do with these pages? :D
